Always interested in technology, Etel planned on becoming an intellectual property lawyer, but along the way discovered an intense passion for writing. Seeking to combine the two areas, she decided to become a technical writer. Etel took a position working on a DigitalOcean co-founder's side project, and, when her responsibilities there were through, she was quickly recruited to join the company full-time.
After answering emails and checking in on her team, Etel dedicates her day to creating new and exciting initiatives that appeal to the DigitalOcean audience. She works closely with the Creative Department to design art work, the Marketing Department to amplify efforts, and the Recruiting Team to bring in new talent—ultimately enhancing the DigitalOcean experience for developers around the globe.
